OPINION: About 50 years of women’s freedom now gone

59

By Modupe Laja

Last week was filled with mixed emotions for millions of women. It was reported that the Supreme Court in the United States of America overruled the Roe v. Wade Case.

The implication of this is that any woman living in the United States has no constitutional right to abort a child.

However, you might be wondering, what is the Roe v. Wade Case?

Roe v. Wade Case started in 1970 when a woman going by the fictional name, Jane Roe filed a lawsuit.

This lawsuit was against a man named Henry Wade, a district attorney for Texas. Hence, the name of the case, Roe versus (v.) Wade.

The reason for Jane Roe’s lawsuit was that she alleged to the fact that the Texas State Law was impinging on her right of personal privacy. Thus, preventing her from getting an abortion.

After 2 years, it was finally decided in 1973, that the right of a woman to abort her baby would be protected by the United States constitution.

What a joy for some women and a time of mourning for others.

Now, 49 years later, the tables have turned as this constitutional right no longer exists.

Will this stop women from having abortions?

Only time will tell how far, wide and deep the impact of the Supreme Court Ruling will have on the lives of millions of women living within and outside the walls of the United States.
